Private Jones was killed in Fermoy County Cork....I also am aware that Officers and Men from the Essex Regiment who fell in Ireland 1919-22 will also be added by the CWGC, and not before time !

Many of them are already in the database - added over the past few months. Others are still in the process of having burial locations verified and visited.

Only those who died up to 31.08.21 can be added though.
